Now I am curious and wonder if I am going to need new arrows as well. I am looking at getting a new Elite and spec for spec is very close to my allegiance. Anyone got a setup of a Gt500 that I can run through my software to see if it is going to spine right....
I guess your draw length, weight and arrow you are currently happy with....not what your programs predict...just what works for you.
Here's what my software says....is this what I can expect? the specs I am planning on are in the information. Also it says with 360 grains, 60 pounds 28.5 draw I am going see 282 f/s.....sound right?
here is what OT2 says about your setup:It has your total arrow weight at 376.3 gr.. I used blazer vanes for your comparison.
It shows your speed at 302.1 but that does not surprise me. As I said OT2 speeds are generous.
The Optimum spine is .383
The static spine is .390
The FOC is 11.19%
Gr./lb. is 6.272
KE is 76.22
It does show that the arrow is spined pretty close to your program. A 90 gr. tip on OT2 would make the arrow even closer to the center for a perfect spine.
I'm still looking for your set ups to verify against OT2.
Help me out guys.
What bow, #'s, DL , Arrow , tip wt., fletching. And if you can paper tune or BH tune.
Here is a real world setup that shoots absolutely perfect for me.....
BowTech Allegiance 2006 Speed Binary 60 pounds 28.5" Draw length
I shoot an ACC 3-49 cut to 27" with 100 grain screw in points using the Easton Inserts.
Real world this shoots awesome. I get 279 f/s with a 357 grain arrow.
TAP shows this as near perfect spine also I might add.
I also have to say this.....I downloaded your OT2 this weekend to try it out.....after spending 2.5 hours with it, I couldnt figure out how to even use it! That is the most god awful difficult piece of software I have ever even seen! There are more settings in there than I even knew existed for a bow and arrow combination.....???? I could never get the same result in OT2 from one screen to the next so I just gave up.....
Oh well...........My specs are above and below is how TAP calculates it which has been verified with plenty of range time.
I would curious to see how OT2 shows this as I couldnt even get it to show anything near what my bow does in real life....I used chrono speed....I tried EVERYTHING in there and just couldnt get anything that even made any sense???
I have a quick question, I am shooting a pulse, 27inDL at 60#s. I cant seem to get te 400s to shoot good, ive tried different point weigts and different settings on OT2, my shafts are cut at 26.5 in with blazers, maxima blue streak 250's. I also ave 6 older maxima 350's cut to 28.5 in i was going to try but havent yet. I was wondering what setting you all are using on OT2 for the pulse? the default is 2 cam xtra hard but if i change that to the use manf ibo setting it changes things drasticly. Thanks
I ran your set up thru OT2. The cam settings are correct for the Pulse. Leave them at the default 2 extra hard cams. The 250's are too weak. The 350 Maximas would work if cut at 27.5" with a 100 gr head. Good luck!
